Pretty bad when an entire card littered with stoppages gets shit on.
If you've been watching since like 2002 then you have every right to complain, this sport isn't half as exciting as it used to be and that's just a fact.

You guys must not watch much sports.

The other night Braves fans were throwing debris into the stadium over a blown call, I can't remember the last time MMA fans pelted the octagon with trash.

Or how about Packers fans and the blown call by the replacement refs.

Or how about Brazilian soccer fans who have been known to rush the field, and then beat this shit out of the police when they try to restore some order.

Or UK football fans who turn entire towns into warzones.

MMA fans are actually one of the most placid groups of fans out there, they mainly limit it to bitching on message boards.

Was it a great card? No. However you can't expect every UFC to be gold. It's just how the sport works, some cards are epic, some not so much. There will always be complainers though, that's the only sure thing.

How is it not ironic that someone weighing in at 250 pounds loses the ability to move like a 145er while moving like a 145er?

By the way, I was making a joke. I guess these days people don't recognize these without some sort of smiley face at the end of each sentence.

The prelims delivered - as usual, but the main card was rubbish.

If I had just watched the main card and this was my first UFC event, I certainly wouldn't be in a rush to watch another one.

No, that's an opinion.

The skill level now blows the skill level from 2002 out of the water, we're seeing things like the Showtime kick, Anderson and Machida's front kicks, guys like Jon Jones, Rory Mac, Chris Weidman are on the scene, and we have heavyweights like Junior, Cain, and DC.

the main card wasnt bad, i dont know why some of you hated it that much, i enjoyed every fight on the main card but yes the prelim did steal the show, as usual

but thats why i enjoyed this card, great prelims and solid main card...thats a solid event IMO, no reason to bitch about, a free card on TV with good fights, nothing amazing, out of this world but not bad at all

im not one to love everything the UFC puts out, there have been many cards that i think was pretty crappy this year, im just saying this wasnt one of them...and i really enjoyed the struve card also

but to be devils advocate, if the UFC didnt have all these injuries and the fights they booked actually happened like it was suppose to i think this year would have been amazing
